Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

At 30K had to replace head gasket the first time. This was under original warranty. At 60K had to do it again. This time it was under "extended warranty". Now, at 102K, they want us to pay $2400 to have it fixed. I USED to like my car. Now I hope someone steals it and drives it into the river!

gasket blew at 61000 miles and again at 88000 miles and they said even though under 100000 miles, it was one month over the 7 years. 2 times with blown head gaskets for the same vehicle and Ford not backing up their product is enough for anyone to never buy a Ford product again.
